Dealing with a Pandemic has been at its best, stressful, and at its worst lethal.  Yet, as a nation we continue to struggle as to how best to deal with it.  The latest battlefront (though by no means a new one) has been the viability or advisability of the recently released Covid-19 immunization.

It seems like there are thousands of questions and not enough answers. Can we trust an immunization that was developed so quickly? Can mRNA change one’s genetic make-up? Would it be advisable to wait and see how the immunization affects other people before one gets it?

This presentation will provide a general overview of the history of immunizations, the mRNA technology, and the development of the Covid-19 immunization. We will delve into some of the myths, present the facts, and discuss future implications. We will allot time at the end of the presentation to answer your questions, so please come prepared.

Objectives:

  1. At the of the presentation participants will be able to identify 3 different Covid-19 vaccine options, including two with current Emergency use Authorization (EUA) by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
  2. At the end of the presentation participants will be able to differentiate DNA from mRNA as related to their location in the cell and their general function.
  3. At the end of the presentation participants will be able to differentiate between live, attenuated virus, recombinant, and mRNA vaccines.
  4. At the end of the presentation participants will be able to compare and contrast opposing views in the vaccination movement and draw personal conclusions.
